Payroll Pledge: WellPoint Associate Giving Campaign

Members of the BDPA Richmond chapter that work for WellPoint are taking advantage of payroll deduction process to support the youth education program in Richmond. We are grateful to Yiddy Chaves, Corlon Ford, Wanda McGee, Justine Turner and Eric Wingate. These five WellPoint employees are making donations to BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) that are being deposited into restricted fund used for Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program in Richmond VA.

The best thing about this funding strategy is that WellPoint Foundation adds an additional 50% matching gift to the payroll deductions from its employees.

We truly hope that all BDPA members and supporters who work for WellPoint will consider following the lead of Yiddy, Corlon, Wanda, Justine and Eric!

Does your employer allow for you to make tax-deductible payroll deductions to the nonprofit of your choice?
